The World Boxing Council has officially ordered a rematch between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury.
Fury was knocked down twice but managed to get back up on both occasions to take Wilder the distance at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on December 1, only for the judges to be split over who was the winner.
The fight was scored 115-111 for Wilder, 114-112 for Fury and 113-113 but many felt that the Briton should have been declared the winner and both boxers have expressed an interest in a rematch.
While Anthony Joshua is eager to take on the American at Wembley in April, the WBC have ordered that Wilder and Fury meet again with the Briton set to receive a greater percentage of the fight purse.
"Consistent with the WBC Board of governors voting regarding the direct rematch between WBC champion Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury, the WBC is hereby notifying both camps that the free negotiation period is opened and if there is no agreement between the parties a purse bid will be conducted by the WBC on Tuesday February 5th," a statement from the WBC read.
"The WBC has modified the 70-30 split and has confirmed a 60-40 split in favor of the champion Wilder considering the market value of Fury."
